Nestled in the heart of the Ozarks of north central Arkansas, Harrison is a small city that embodies an intriguing history within the state. The seat of Boone County, Harrison was incorporated on March 1, 1876, during Reconstruction. It is named after Marcus LaRue Harrison, a brigadier general in the Union cavalry who surveyed and platted the city. Harrison is noted for its active national historic district. For over 100 years, the historic town square has featured shops, cafes, a theater, a post office, a hotel, and government offices, as well as the county courthouse, which sits in the center of the square. Harrison has been able to maintain its history through community leadership and conservation efforts. Many of the citizens in the city and in the surrounding area have been here for generations and take great pride in their history, heritage, and community.
